    The_Pope's NGPC Collection

    New member round these parts. I love seeing everyone's collection of arcade machines but for me, it's pocket-sized NGPC.

    I have 23 different titles (with a couple of duplicates) and all six original launch colours for the console. Never got around to the cammo or yellow JAP versions.

    Got a few of the rarer titles too, bought back in 2000 before the recall took bite.

    Any questions welcome

    Before you sell me something, ask how well my baby is doing and can I afford to take care of him while buying your stuff. HDRchampion's Avatar

    These are the normal full retail UK plastic clamshell cases / boxes. They sat the the store shelf like a DVD would today. The only odd one out in these pictures is Cool Boarders because it's a JAP cart, so the retail box is all cardboard

    I have a UK Cool Boarders for the NGPC (as well as a UK Magical Drop Pocket). I very much envy the rest of your collection, though. That's an impressive collection of rares there. Let me know if you ever want to split up your doubles of Faselei! for a reasonable price.

    Very nice collection! I'm surprised you dont have any B&W systems though. They may have decreased functionality, but some of the color variations they have look really stunning. Heres a picture i took of mine:

    Nice Alec - would you call that "white"? Looks classier than my Silver.

    TBH I don't own any B&W games, and I didn't want to collect the consoles just for the sake of it. Arguably buying "one of each" of the Colour consoles was somewhat indulgent but I guess I got swept up in the fever when the recall kicked in. I haven't actually bought anything to add to my collection for 10 years... :O

    The color is caleld "pearl white". its not perfectly white though, its very slightly off-white. like a really light ivory with a pearlish sheen to it.

    It's such a great little console. 40 hours of gameplay from two AA batteries, that precision 8-way microswitch joystick is SO superior to any D-Pad... you can pick up a console for Ģ25-30 and the more common games are only around Ģ15. I really like Turf Masters (golf) and Sonic Adventures is very slick. Obviously if you're into the Fighting Games there's lots of traditional Neo Geo fare

    Let me know if you want help getting started

    Nice collection man!

    Itīs a great console and has a lot of fun games. As The Pope says the batteries life is very long, the only thing I miss is a backlight screen but there are mods to do it.

    These clamshell cases are beautiful, IMO the best cases I ever seen for portable games

    Sounds like a nice collection!

    This is my first post so I guess I don't have the priviliges yet to look at photo attachments (or to post my own thread). You should check out my NGPC collection too when I put it up on the site. I am almost done getting every game in the U.S. set. Need 10 more factory sealed to have my sealed collection complete.
